    Is this sentence is grammatical?

    Dear teachers,

    Can you tell me if the following sentence is grammatical?

    Recent changes in the economy made companies tease about their investments.

    Your sentence doesn't make sense because of the incorrect choice of verb. A better sentence would be:

    "Recent changes in the economy have made companies worry about their investments".

    ercantuncer, as I have told you at least once before, a better title would have been Recent changes in the economy.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
